Why Generalist > Specialist
This episode argues the core of Pat's philosophy of generalism. That argument is this: Forget being the best in the world. Instead, focus on getting good to great--or at least fairly competent--at a variety of different skills, then learn to combine those skills to form a competitive advantage and creative spirit. In this episode, Pat and Jordan discuss how to become an expert-generalist, ironically enough, by being an effective "short-term specialist", or learning to rotate your learning emphasis. We tie all this in to building strength, businesses, relationships, and more. Promise you're going to love it.
